  • Abstract : To investigate the effect of energy on rock fragmentation, initial testing was carried out using a drop test device. A total of 180 specimens of Wausau quartzite and anorthosite of 3.0 to 3.5 inch size were fragmented in this device. An analysis of the fragment distribution results of the drop tests showed that the energy applied was approximately inversely proportional to the mean fragment size. However, these results were not totally conclusive because of the limited energy… CONTINUE READING
